Train town prices go poof

From Bloomberg:

NJ Transit Train Delays Hit a Record After the Governor’s Pledge to Fix Them

New Jersey Transit commuter trains have hit their worst on-time and reliability records in the 18 months since Governor Phil Murphy promised to overhaul the nation’s second-biggest commuter railroad.

For the 12 months ended in March, 90% of peak trains departed or arrived on schedule. That’s the lowest average among 16 years of such data on NJ Transit’s website. Trains also broke down more frequently than ever from the July start of the fiscal year through March, records show.

Commuters face even more inconvenience. The agency through 2020 is testing federally mandated emergency braking, a project that caused unprecedented disruption last year as locomotives were sidelined for software installations. And for 12 weeks starting June 17, at least 5,000 daily Manhattan commuters will have to take a ferry or another railroad to cross the Hudson River to accommodate track work at Pennsylvania Station.

Murphy, a Democrat who took office in January 2018, has made some strides on a promise to turn around NJ Transit’s safety and reliability issues in the wake of eight years of budget cuts by his Republican predecessor, Chris Christie. But the most maddening troubles, crowding and lateness, continue to plague riders seeking to avoid some of the nation’s most congested roads.

The bill also sought to increase transparency, but so far that’s been a disappointment to Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr., a Westfield Republican who served on the committee investigating NJ Transit. He’s sponsoring legislation to compel the railroad to disclose why it discontinued Manhattan-direct service on the Raritan Valley Line in September 2018, and when it might return. He said the law is necessary because NJ Transit hasn’t answered his multiple inquiries on the matter.

“It impacts real-estate values,” Kean said by telephone. “From the smallest communities to the largest urban centers in New Jersey, everyone is impacted by this dysfunction.”

    This is what happens when a fat governor tries to destroy the agency by shortchanging the budget for almost a decade. Good job, now we are left with the pain and cost. If you didn’t like how it was run, then do something about that, don’t ignore the agency for 10 years compounding the problem along the way.

    FWIW….

    IPO market may be getting toppy…one trail marker to use in your broader view of market…

    Aside from CRWD a couple days ago FVRR went yesterday. Interesting price action, flattish (relatively speaking) out out of the box for a bit from the first trade ($26) then ran up 50% to $39 at the end of the day.

    CHWY coming today. They’ve upsized the offering to the max and increased the price. That’s notable, and will be interesting to watch this price action, trade around it, and draw implications for the broader market…

    TLDR: Long term, deal reeks of a feed-the-machine, get-it-out-while-the-window-is-open desperation issue for the benefit of an over leveraged parent. Short term, watch how it trades on issue for opportunities in the stock and an indication of the current state of the IPO market and what it says about the broader market in general.

    I’ve done no deep analysis, just barely glanced at the S1 but here goes….

    This is ugly.

    The vast majority of the offering is going to the selling shareholder (parent, PetSmart) who retains control and needs the offering to pay down its own debt. This is a deleveraging play by the parent by spinning off a small minority ownership in a sub which they only purchased a few years back at a much lower price. It’s getting premium pricing to distribute the proceeds of the offering to its parent, while the parent retains full control.

    If anyone has an example of a minority float from a control company getting a market premium (rather than the usual liquidity discount) please let me know, I’d be interested.

    How one plays this today, if interested, and into next week obviously depends on the opening price. Unless opened stupidly high (eg, LYFT) from its IPO price ($25) I would look for a runup. I would also look toward anything that looks toward a top – whether early trades today off an aggressive opening or a more traditional run off a lower opening price – to take the other side. Things like these generally don’t end well. As usual, I go through options to quantify loss in the extremely risky trades. I just hope a high in this stock hangs around for the week or so it takes to get options listed.

  11. The Great Pumpkin says:

    Def not Christie’s fault, he just added to it instead of doing something about it. I’m just pissed that no one did a damn thing about it for how long? That’s the problem with human beings, we ignore small problems until they become a crisis, then and only then, do we address the issue. I expect the same thing from climate change, a few decades from now they will be in crisis mode. Look at the pension issue, they took and took for 20 years, and now cry about the problem. Like wtf, are there any grown-ups around? Can we tackle issues before they become crisis level problems with no easy fix? Is that too much to ask?

    So somehow eliminating perks of crap coffee and days old sandwiches is preventing a recession?

    Pumps we are talking about trillions in borrowing and spending here not the difference between a subsidized sandwich and some freeze dried bottom basement coffee grinds.

    760 of the 883 months since the end of WWII the economy of the USA the economy was growing. The economy is now on track to make history. Economic expansion for exactly 10 years this month without any sign of recession. Next month we are about to surpass the 1990s dot com boom which set the previous record.

    Another recession is inevitable in the future but we ain’t there yet…..the emotions simply aren’t there yet.

    The End Is Nigh (jj Edition):

    The World Cries Out for Onion Derivatives
    A six-decade U.S. ban on betting on the vegetable’s future price is still in place

    By Mike Bird
    The cost of onions is causing tears in India. An onion futures market, which would damp volatility in the price of the aromatic bulb, might help dry them.

    The price of onions has surged in India during the past month, leading the government to withdraw export incentives on Tuesday to keep more of the vegetable in the domestic market. As recently as the beginning of the year, the problem facing India was low onion prices, which were pinching farmers’ incomes. Volatile prices reach consumers immediately because there are no derivatives with which farmers can hedge themselves.

    In the U.S., that’s because of a highly unusual piece of legislation: the 1958 Onion Futures Act, which was passed after two traders cornered the market in physical onions and onion-futures contracts listed on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Onions are still the only agricultural commodity in which the U.S. bans futures trading.

    India can do better than the U.S. Unleash the onion options, deploy the shallot swaps, and let the market do its job.

    I know most of you know this, but still worth sharing. Be thankful if you are able to maintain the top 20%, no easy feat.

    “Making it to the top may be the American dream. But getting there may be easier than staying there.

    Over roughly 40 years, 70% of the population made it into the top 20% of earners for at least one year, according to researchers at Cornell University and Washington University in St. Louis. But only about 21% remained there for 10 consecutive years, and even fewer clung to the top rung for a solid decade.

    “A small group of people persist at the high and low levels,” said Thomas A. Hirschl, a Cornell sociologist and one of the researchers who studied the phenomenon. “But a big crowd of people move in and out.””

    He said no one had ever talked to him like that in the thirty plus years he worked in the direct. I was careful not to use profanity but I was very clear about the fact that I believed he’d let the District “ go down the drain “.

    But don’t worry between his wife and he (she was the district testing supervisor….yeah you read that right) they take home in excess of $200k a year for their hard work in managing a “changing demographic”.

    Pros and cons with anything. I don’t support a 100% union workforce, but I do support a 30% union workforce as a check on big business taking advantage of the fact that there are more workers than jobs.

    If you can think of a better strategy for bringing back the middle class than a union of workers collectively bargaining, I’m all ears. Profits at all-time highs, increasing every year, yet the majority of workers left with stagnant wages. Something has to be done, and right now unions are the only tool I know of that can address this problem.

    Is Pumpkin in a union now? If so that would explain a lot. Like why he still has a job at all. I wonder if unions would protect the Kellen Winslows of the world, claim he has a disease.

    Cows are now suing Beyond Meat for cultural appropriation.

    Beyond Meat Stock Shot Higher Because Short Sellers Lost Big Time

    S3, a data-analytics firm that provides short-selling data to Wall Street, wrote this week that 5.87 million shares of Beyond Meat (ticker: BYND) were sold short ahead of the company’s first quarterly report.

    That’s more than 51% of the free float of stock.

  61. Bystander says:

    Dufus, don’t speak for me. I am not advocating for more unions. Unions were very much necessary for my grandfather when losing and eye and fingers in LI sand pits, not Fat Paulie and Tony playing paper football behind desks at BOE. The fix for problems that workers are experiencing is completely legislative. Up the H1b salary requirements, get rid of Tata and Infosys within this country, quicken green card procedures so people can stop being a slave to corp masters. I just want to level the playing field. Ran into old boss on street. Guy was 25 years in IT at old IB. He has let go two months ago. He said it is very dry out there. Nothing going on. This confirms everything I thought. Things are f”ed

  62. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    FSBO Nimfy’s sister is a teacher in Paterson. I don’t think anyone in the entire family has ever left Passaic County. Oh, I stand corrected, his criminal Dad was deported back to Poland.

    If you want to see hundreds of hilarious pictures of Nimfy and his family, figure out his sister’s name and go to her facebook page. I must say that Nimfy’s entire wedding party all look like high school dropouts.

    Shut up Ping-Pong….. have you ever talked to a teacher….. what a jacka$$ you are

  64. Bruiser says:

    ExEssex, you called him at home to poke him in the chest? What did you expect would be the outcome of that? You’re a scummer hust like rest of the card-carrying knuckledraggers. Truth to power huh? A prime example of a problem with unions.

  65. ExEssex says:

    Eat a dick Bruiser. The guy was a butch probably like you.

  66. ExEssex says:

    Butch = Bitch. A whiny little bitch bruiser.

  67. The Great Pumpkin says:

    The president just tweets all day and you guys bust my balls for posting while I am working. I type fast, so not taking much time out of my day. This guy, you know he doesn’t type fast…

    Just saying..

    Essex, you are the man! I had a nice laugh based on your last response.

    Been awhile, but this is a trend I’ve/we’ve brought up a few times in the past with a slight twist…Who will buy the McMansions of the boomers?
